I've never once considered finding that notebook and gaining this power a misfortune. In fact, it's made me happier than I've ever been. And I'm going to create a perfect world.

Light continues to be a psychopath. Light's dad continues to be a total badass. L continues to actually live up to his reputation at his own funky pace. This serious continues to be a lot of fun. I have trepidation about the reveal from that last set of panels and the fact that the next volume is entitled Love, but let's see how it goes, right? ( )

This was was pretty intense! Quite a bit happens with L and Light and a new character is introduced. . . . ( )

I love the obsessive, logical detail put into this story. Like a hyper-detailed police procedural but in a world of the supernatural! ( )

So, L and Light are together now, and while it wasn't a surprise as to what was going to happen, having already seen the series, their ongoing battle is one of my favourite parts. Really enjoyed this book. ( )

Light secured a terrible blow to the police effort by managing to kill 12 FBI agents in Japan without getting caught. Furthermore, Naomi Misora has seemingly vanished, and the tips she wished to share with the police effort that would have guaranteed Kira's demise were not delivered.

But L is relentless and continues to suspect Light's involvement with the crimes. His tactic? To hide from the shadows and pretend to be a college student to get closer to Light under a fake name to lure him into a trap.

While Light wonders whether L/Ryuuzaki is just a scapegoat or the true L, a second Kira has appeared and will cause a power rift that could cause problems for Light.

While I know beforehand L's stint in college in the greater sense of the whole manga is too brief to cause any real impact in the plot, I liked his boldness, his relentless quirks, poor fashion sense, and the pecking love/hate/mutual respect relationship he develops with Light in this volume. He has grown tired of hiding and is risking his own life in order to force Light to make a mistake.

I did find this volume to get slow at times, and the appearance of the second Kira was a bit too rushed for my taste. However, it's still a rock solid volume. 4 1/2 stars. ( )
